CIDETEC will work on the electrochemical characterization of the electrolytes based on ionic liquids. On the other hand, CIDETEC will focus on the surface activation and selection of electrodeposition parameters (DC, Pulse plating) to obtain Al deposits on plastic substrates. It will also provide support for the transfer of the electrodeposition process to industrial scale. Additionally, it will specialize in defining some concrete posttreatments for Al electrodeposited coatings (anodizing and colouring, polishing). Complementary actions will involve a deep characterization of the obtained coatings and a detailed analysis of the electrodeposition process efficiency.
